RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is mourning the loss of a student and soccer player who was killed when struck by a semitrailer in western North Dakota’s oil patch.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says 20-year-old Benjamin Enterman, of Warner Robins, Georgia, was taking measurements on state Highway 23 in McKenzie County for an engineering company on Tuesday afternoon when he was struck. He died at the scene.

The Rapid City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1GRAeqm ) that Enterman enrolled in the Rapid City school in 2013 as a civil engineering student. He was working as an intern at the job in North Dakota.

College President Heather Wilson says the school “is heartbroken” over Enterman’s death. She says he was an “outgoing and well-known student on campus.”
